A bad move. More 'social change' substituting for science is the wrong way to go.
Leave 'spaced blues' and Al Gore alone!!!

They have a right to show their true colors. Besides, science has nothing to do with their beliefs!!

What should be laughed at is the clueless reasoning that is used by the denial. The LACK of science in their 'message' should be disdained.
Al comes from a political family that understands and serves the American people.

He talked about how people are keeping silent because of the aggressive deniers. Search for his interview with Charlie Rose.

If we could only get Obama to STFU, that would reduce CO2 by about 10 trillion cubic liters per year. Not to mention ending his non-stop lies & BS!

In this thread and others, Al Gore gets a pass: he's not a scientist they say, he's just a promoter they say, or he's a politician they say.
And when questioned as to what Gore says, promotes and demands on the part of global warming compared how he himself lives in his mansions, his jets & travel and his SUV caravans to and from his 'events', he gets another pass.
Stuff like that makes thinking people say, hmmmm....
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
Your arguments have more holes than moth-eaten flannel underwear.....

lol...does that include his dad, son? You do know his dad was VP at Occidental Petroleum and also served as Chairman of Island Creek Coal Co., don't you? His dad did serve the people in my opinion. Big Al just served himself. Tipper left because he couldn't serve her! Lol

Yegads! You think I'm talking about a media campaign for all your 'scientists' to "sell" global warming? How about just a march, a letter to the editor, anything to show they are taking it as seriously as you are. What changes in their lives have they made to thwart global warming, and demonstrate it is indeed a "crisis".
As for Al Gore, if he believes in it, he doesn't abide by it.
Lousy spokesman you have there.
But that's something warmists don't talk about.
Look on one hand you guys have labelled Global warming a liberal idea or a commie plot. Yet we live in a capitalist society, so if you have the money you can buy your green credits. To use your phrase "so what" if Al buys his credits, he can afford to do so, that's life under a capitalist system. Being green doesn't mean we all have to live in a cave, yet some of these tea baggers seem to think its a plot for UN world government. For each one of us, it would be next to impossible to live being carbon neutral, so we should pay for the privilege. If everyone did that then we wouldn't have a problem. That's the whole idea of reducing carbon emissions, there will be rich polluters and poor polluters. The rich can afford to have the electric or enviro car as their every day ride and keep the sports car in the garage for weekends. The less well off will only have one car to deal with. So how is that any different to living as we do now, not a damn thing. Carbon pricing doesn't change anything about who will be successful and who will struggle to survive. Its about adjusting lifestyle so that if each one of us reduce their carbon footprint to try and avoid a global catastrophe. It's all about making the average Joe who may have saved same spare cash and would like to buy a new ski boat but installs solar panels on his roof instead because it represents far better value to his family.
